To Little Miss Joy with love
In my dreams I always lose you,
as if I need the reminder.
your absence hangs in the air around me,
each breath I take sparks memories
that jolt across my mind
but ultimately slip away when I exhale.
In my dream last night,
or perhaps it was the early hours of morning,
I fought and ran and clung to you,
desperate to keep you with me,
with all of us.
I forget sometimes,
consumed by my own loss and heartbreak,
that others lost you too,
and that we will always love you,
and miss you.
The only thing I hope for,
is to meet you once again,
not lost in dreams,
but beautifully, tangibly,
